Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

Boehner: "Can't Help But Get The Sense That the Wheels Are Coming Off" This Presidency

JOHN BOEHNER: At least one of the five Taliban commanders that was released played a key role in al Qaeda's plans leading up to the attacks of 9/11. The White House thought the American people were going to cheer when the president released these terrorists. I think his misreadings of the American people are fairly shocking. And with terrorists marching toward Baghdad, we asked the president for a strategy to reverse the momentum and spread of terrorism. I heard a little bit about Iraq yesterday, but the White House has known for months about the situation in Iraq, and when you look, it's not just Iraq. It's Libya, It's Egypt, It's Syria. The spread of terrorism has increased exponentially under this president's leadership. And, as you may recall after the last election I said that I hope that the president would seize this moment and take the lead. And here we are a year and a half later, you look at this presidency and you can't help but get the sense that the wheels are coming off.
